    This chapter treats of David’s being anointed king by all Israel, ( <131101> Chronicles 11:1-3), which agrees with ( 2 Samuel 5:1-3) and of his taking Jerusalem from the Jebusites, ( 1 Chronicles 11:4-9) the account of which we have ( 2 Samuel 5:6-10), only here we are told, that it was Joab that smote the Jebusites first, and so was made chief captain according to David’s promise; and that he also repaired the rest of the city David built round about; perhaps the fortifications demolished in taking it, ( 1 Chronicles 11:6,8) or rather, as others give the sense, he “saved alive” those that remained in the city, after he had slain the lame and the blind; though a learned writer conjectures it should be read, “and Joab hyhy was made rç the governor of the city”; and the Targum is, ``Joab governed the rest of the city.”

    And then follows an account of David’s mighty men and worthies, ( Chronicles 11:10-41) of whom see the notes on ((See Gill on “ 2 Samuel 23:8-39”)) and others are added here, ( 1 Chronicles 11:42-47) of whom we know no more than their names.
